The acetal scraper has a double headed ends of 0.28" (7mm) and 0.79" (20mm) working area and is used to scrape sealant off areas requiring rework or tidy-up. Such areas include the exterior pressurised fuselage skin: Lap Joints, Butt Joints. All other areas (i.e. antenna cut-outs, wing to body fairings, around window forgings, etc). For user comfort, the scraper side edges have been smoothed off. Supplied in a sealed pack of 10 scrapers or bulk value packs of 500 and 1000.
Manufactured and specifically designed for the aircraft industry. sealant scrapers are manufactured from a semi-crystalline thermoplastic which is a Boeing and Airbus approved material for sealant removal.
It is safe for use on bare alclad aluminium air frames and surfaces. The material makeup of our scrapers provides good pliability and strength whilst also being chemically resistant. The semi crystalline thermoplastic is the preferred material choice for aircraft manufacturers because it offers to the end-user more control when removing sealant and eliminates risk of scratch or score damage on aluminium substrates.
In addition to removing aircraft sealants - sealant scrapers are also fit for use with the removal of stickers, decals, loose paint and surface contaminants, where damage may otherwise occur to the underlying skin or structure. Scraper products are easily identifiable in the working environment because of luminous red dye used for our product line making it highly visible, therefore from a quality control perspective FOD risk is minimalised when in use on the aircraft.
Scraper 3-step QC process guarantees that only the highest quality plastic products are delivered to our customers. We understand there is a wide range of industry standards out there, which is why our 3-step policy is in place to ensure we deliver a product that can be trusted across multiple trades and disciplines.
